Banu Subramaniam

Our warmest congratulations to Dr. Banu Subramaniam, Professor in the Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, who was awarded the highly coveted 2016 Ludvik Fleck Prize by the Society for Social Studies of Science (4s).

The award celebrates Subramaniam's 2014 book Ghost Stories for Darwin: The Science of Variation and the Politics of Diversity (University of Illinois Press).  In announcing its decision, the Fleck Prize committee writes that "Subramaniam has written a brilliant book that is optimistic and hopeful, that places imagination at the center of knowing, and brightly illuminates the spectacularly interesting and exciting relationships and knowledges that are possible if we embrace variation." For her part, Dr. Subramaniam calls the book "a case for the critical need to understand the co-constitution of gender, race, sexuality, and nation, and their co-production with and through the institutions and histories of science and feminism."
